Read magazines on your mobile device!

A rolling stone gathers no moss, and neither does the Newport Library! Using our new subscription to Flipster, you can read Rolling Stone and 49 other magazines on your smart phone, tablet, or computer! 

Flipster is available on the library's website, under the tab for "eBooks & More."  After you log in, you can scroll through the most recent covers of the magazines.

Once you select a title, you have the option of reading the current issue, or a back issue. 

You can also view thumbnails of each page, and click between them to move to another section of the magazine.

To use Flipster on a mobile device, you'll need to download the app.  You'll continue to browse for titles from the website, but once you decide on an issue, you can download it to your app. This allows you to read it even when you are not connected to the internet.  

Weekly magazines check out for two days, and monthlies for five days.  If you need more time, just check it out again; there is no waiting period!  

We hope you'll enjoy Flipster.  Give it a try, and tell us what you think!
